    " I would actually recommend this watch. I recommend it because of the clean/comfortable look. Not too large and not heavy. Waterproof. Bluetooth's a great feature. Picks up satellites quickly. My primary issue with the watch is the lap counter and light function. They are the same button. So, if you run when it's dark outside, you have to use either the back light or the manual lap counter, you cannot use both. In addition, the lap button is so sensitive that it you are wearing anything over the watch, it will count laps every few minutes. Even very light jackets will set off this function. I have to keep the sleeve rolled up to prevent this from happening. Forget about wearing gloves over the watch. Because of the HR function, you cannot wear anything under the watch. The answer to this problem is simple, a separate, less sensitive button for the lap function."

    "I've been shopping around for a watch that could help track my progress while practicing for an upcoming triathlon and decided to give this one a try. The tide tracking feature is very nice for the swimming portion and the watch is tough enough to withstand a very active few hours. The battery life is quite satisfactory as well. "

    "There are smart watches and wearable available everywhere that basically do the same thing. With the Finis it more or less does the same thing. So i would go for this only if you are familiar with the brand, it still comes out a little cheaper than the fitbit but it also has about the same features as the rest out there. Nothing that really stands out. "
